Strip processing

Slitting lines, cut-to-length lines, blanking lines, surface treatment by mechanical, chemical and coating appllication, belt rewinding and unwinding, tension control, belt centration, weighing and packing of output coils.

When putting into opearation the plant, individual measurements of the mechanical properties of the unwinder and winder are performed to optimize drive settings for low winding torques. Tension control ensures a precise alignment and tightening of of individual revolutions on the winder drum.

Belt cutting is performed when the belt is stopped or by using the flying shears. A special case is the cutting of trapezoidal sheets by swivelling the shears using Siemens Sinamics S120 frequency convertor.

Equipment for the surface treatment of metals is exposed to aggressive chemicals, therefore the material used in electrical installations (cable routes, sleeves, cable ties and fasteners) is designed with this in mind as well.

Safe automation

RG PODLE EN13849-1General principles for the design, assessment and reduction of risk are processed by the EN ISO 12100 standard. The risk assessment is carried out for all threats, the standard defines the sequence of steps, starting with establishing the function of the machine.

In designing electrical equipment, we take into account the safety application standard EN ISO 13849-1. A risk chart is used to determine the required level of safety and works with the term “required performance level PLr”. Not so often the standard EN 62061 is applied, where the process represents a numeric method and works with the term “required safety integrity level SIL”.

In the design of safe automation, we use the software Siemens Safety Evaluation Tool tested by TÜV or IFA SISTEMA developed by the German Institute of occupational safety. It allows modeling of the structure of the designed safety-related parts of control systems, and works with familiar concepts PLr, MTTFd, PFHD, etc. The output is the verification of the relation of PL≥PLr, i.e. the calculated level is higher or equal to the required one.

We design the safety concept of the equipment in the initial processing of the project. More often they are designed PLCs in safety embodiment, i.e. Allen-Bradley GuardPLC from Rockwell Automation or Simatic Safety Integrated from Siemens. Find out more here >>.

Computer simulation

DLAŽDICE POČÍTAČOVÁ SIMULACE ContiThe portfolio of services includes the processing of a digital model and the subsequent computer simulation of a discrete production system behavior. We specialize in branched conveyor systems with buffers, the production of semi-finished products with the use of intermediate storages, an assembly lines and a workplaces in the automotive industry and last, but not least, the bath pickling lines. We use the simulation tool Siemens Tecnomatix Plant Simulation.

The computer simulation significantly facilitates the designing of the production system because the designed and required parameters for both the new and the current event-based production systems can be verified with a high level of probability. The model is useful for introducing a new product into production and increasing productivity associated with.

Bottlenecks or collision spots and conditions are identified, the chosen speeds, the production capacity per a time unit, the sufficient number of specified resources and the capacity of buffering bins are verified and some measures are taken – changes in the layout, a number of resources, the transport flows or decision criteria are modified; all these without the deployment of the actual resources (machinery, people).

Just in the model or in the external MS Excel spreadsheet, you can specify the production batch or the batch mix, the formula or work shifts, the number of functional resources (machinery, operators) and/or production flows. The results include reports and charts as well as answers to questions.

If the interest shown, you may arrange individual consultation with our experts. We would be pleased to organise workshops both in Ostrava and Brno. We can demonstrate the sample models, reports and related documents. Find out more here >>.

RFID Identification and RTLS locating

RFIDTAURID is a certified partner of Siemens for industrial identification. SIMATIC Ident systems include the RFID (radio frequency identification) and CRS (code reading systems) and newly also RTLS (real-time locating system) technology. RFID technology can be used wherever there is  a requirement for greater flexibility and the quality of production for tracking the movement either final products or transporting baskets.

RFID technology is able to detect objects within a distance of a few cm (frequency range HF 13.56 MHz) or several meters (frequency range UHF 860-960 MHz). Detection is reliable even though it is polluted by oil or dust; multiply detection is possible; the data can be modified and a large amount processed. The advantage of Siemens RFID technology is an easy integration into PLC Simatic S7-300/400, S7-1200/1500 or PC.

Our specialists will be happy to help you elaborating a design for industrial identification system using RFID technology, with the dimensions of suitable data carriers, read/write heads, communication interface and with the appropriate system configuration of management and monitoring, either on the PLC or PC platform. We offer the comprehensive automation and industrial identification solution for your production line.
